STOP THE MONOPOLY OF THE CENTRAL EQUIPMENT POOL FOR POWER WHEELCHAIR

This petition had 238 supporters


What we as power wheelchairs users in Ontario would like to have is the permission to go to any ADP Authorized Vendor of our choise to receive or fix a power chair with a power dynamic tilt.

The Central Equipment Pool for High Technology Wheelchairs (CEP) provides Assistive Devices Program (ADP) clients throughout Ontario with high quality new and recycled power wheelchairs and power tilt/recline units. All eligible individuals who apply for ADP funding assistance for a power wheelchair that includes power dynamic tilt and/or recline must obtain their equipment from the CEP. Requests for the addition of power dynamic tilt and/or recline to an existing power wheelchair must also go through CEP.

Motion Specialties manages and operates the CEP for ADP in all of Ontario. Since The Ministry of Health has authorised Motion Specialty to have sole control over the Equipment Pool, the service for the wheelchair users has drastically declined. If we had the choise to choose what vender that we want to go to; it would give incentive to the businesses to compete and provide a better service. That is why we are asking as many people as possible to sign this petition to ask the Minister of Health to decentralize the CEP.
